SILENT NIGHT POST OFFICE 1999
"Silent Night," the famous Christmas carol, was first performed 1818 in
Oberndorf, Austria. In remembrance to the carol, Oberndorf will once again offer a special
seasonal pictorial postmark beginning on Nov 26.
This year's postmark depicts the Silent Night Chapel, and celebrates the 75th Anniversary
of the laying of the foundation stone of the Silent Night Memorial Chapel in Oberndorf.

Christmas stamp, send two International Reply Coupons OR two US dollars (return airmail

If wanted, the Silent Night Museum will forward your Christmas mail from Oberndorf with
